Asus MX239H


The Asus MX239H offers solid IPS color and viewing angle performance in a sleek 23-inch desktop monitor. Its grayscale performance could be better, though.

Good color and viewing angle performance. Stylish design. Two HDMI ports

Weak dark grayscale performance. Limited ergonomic adjustments. Erratic control buttons

Thin, bezel-free monitors are all the rage these days, and for good reason; they don't take up a lot of room on your desk and they look great. The Asus MX239H is the latest floating screen style monitor to hit the labs. It uses a 23-inch AH-IPS...

Although the ASUS MX239H is missing a few convenient features in the area of adjustability, the screen quality makes up for that greatly. The IPS technology used in this monitor provides bright, vivid imagery that will help you fully realize the...

This monitor has the fastest response times of all the IPS monitors we reviewed

When it comes to adjustability, the ASUS ML239H only tilts

Although the screen specs are superb, the lack of user-friendly options like wall mounting makes it fall short of the best.

Awesome Monitor!


I bought this monitor to accompany my new gaming rig and I could not be happier, 23" is the perfect size and the monitor has done everything it promised to do. The pros far out way the cons and I would highly recommend this monitor to anybody.

Beautiful monitor design, stands out from the rest ; Great contrast ; No ghosting ; Nice matte finish on screen ; Sturdy build, feels like it will last me years ; Two HDMI inputs (great for a CPU and game console) ; Super bright (easily adjusted, i...

Tad expensive, but still worth it ; Buttons needs LEDs on symbols, hard to see in dark ; Touch buttons are nice, but easily hit mistakenly

Everything I wanted


I use this monitor for both my PC and my PS3 and it works flawlessly for both. Sadly when using my PS3 I have to plug my Bose speaker into the monitor but it is bearable.

Amazing quality in every way. I wanted to get a monitor with good color but not have much delay because I'm a gamer so input delay is bad but to my surprise this gives me amazing color detail and at no noticeable delay. The sound quality of the built...

The sound card isn't that great so you are pretty much always going to want to plug you speakers or headsets into your computer

Great, but a bit expensive


I ordered two of these monitors to use for primary building a website, work purposes and gaming. Now I know these are not gaming monitors so to speak, but I have had no issues with them so far. I don't really know much about monitors refresh rate, but...

Thin, looks great, sharp, colors are vibrant and speakers are actually really good for being on a monitor

Bezel or neck is lose, there is some wiggle. Button layout is a bit off, the touch sensors are nice but can sometimes be mistakenly hit

Looks awesome and haven't had a single problem yet. I own two and it looks great with multimonitor gaming. The fact that you can sit virtually anywhere in respect to the monitor with prefect clarity is great

None, easy setup and would recommend to everyone :)

Excellent ASUS monitor


My primary use for this monitor is programming, gaming, and watching movies. I purchased this monitor as my primary screen along with another Asus 21.5" IPS. This monitor puts the other IPS to shame, it's just that good! I'm thinking I should have...

Amazing color accuracy; this monitor has a very wide gamut of color reproduction and is able to replicate colors that other monitors can't ; AH-IPS Panel (Advanced High Performance IPS, the most recent variation of IPS technology refined by LG) ;...

Speakers are unnecessary ; Monitor cannot swivel or adjust vertically

Excellent Monitors


I have two of these monitors and this is my second review. I verified everything I said above with both. Originally I couldn't because of the color difference I noticed between them. However, the color problem was fixed when I switched to "active"...

Good IPS technology. Matte finish. Colors are very nice. Scored very well on a monitor test where I looked at different shades of color and contrast/black levels. I was able to distinguish between each shade easily. Price is reasonable ; Response time...

Backlight bleed along the corners at off-center viewing angles. Only really noticeable on an all black screen. It spreads the worse the viewing angle (from the corners). It's a bit different than standard bleed from an TN panel (explained below). I...
